Stress – A malfunctioning or inefficient HVAC system can be the source of all kinds of stress. Many of the signs that your system needs attention, from strange noises to uneven heating and cooling, can make it difficult to feel comfortable in your own home. That’s part of why preventive maintenance is so important — it allows your HVAC technician to catch problems early, before they develop into an inconvenience or an emergency. For a truly stress-free experience, set up an annual service agreement to preschedule annual tuneups.
Sick Days – Even beyond your emotional and mental health, consider the physical benefits of regular maintenance. Dirt, dust, allergens, mold — all of these can be lurking in your HVAC system, causing symptoms that range from headaches to fatigue. If you find yourself calling in sick or canceling plans often, poor indoor air quality could be to blame. The solution? Have your indoor air quality tested, schedule regular HVAC tuneups, and follow other professional advice for managing indoor air quality.
Sudden Expenses – It’s tempting, in the name of saving money, to stretch out the time between maintenance visits as long as possible. However, this approach can easily backfire. What starts as a minor annoyance can develop into a full-blown system breakdown faster than you might think, so don’t procrastinate. A tuneup every fall and spring can keep your system running at peak performance and save you from the sudden expense of installing a replacement.
Look at regular HVAC maintenance as an investment. You have to put some money in, but it won’t be as much as you’d pay for or a new AC in the middle of a heat wave. 6 & Fix Heating and Cooling offers a maintenance plan, called the Advantage Plan, since regular maintenance provides your HVAC system the advantage of lasting longer.
